thom-le I will go take a look at your deck and let you know how the button works.
I'm so glad to hear that you have tested my deck out. I think it runs very well and I appreciate the suggestions to enhance some of the cards already in the deck. I think AEtherize and Flood of Recollection are great cards and I have thought about adding them in the past. I'm to that point where it is hard to cut cards. But I will say that the one card I was thinking about cutting was Land Equilibrium. Not that it doesn't help but its tough to spend turn 4 casting that card. It really does "get" the ramp decks which is great but it can also be a card that just does nothing.
Settle the Wreckage is also great, but I hate ramping my opponents. Having Land Equilibrium out would be necessary for me to want to cast that. I think there is enough bounce in the deck that it isn't necessary but that might just be my meta. It is still a great card and would make sense to play over other cards if you own it.
Balance effects draws so much hate in my area that I stay away from those cards but they do work with this deck seeing as how you are usually not ramping at all.

@Gidgetimer, Drunken Reaps:
In previous drafts of this deck, I never used to run stuff like Bolt and Spike for the same reasons you outlined: doing 3 damage of the minimum 40 is, frankly, underwhelming. It wasn't until I got closer to this iteration of the deck that I considered them more. I looked over my options for Instant and Sorcery Burn sources and concluded that if I was going to get anywhere, I had to at least try them. So far things are alright. As one off damage and no momentum a la crap draws, they're awful. In the GY, however, with an active Kess and more expensive Spells in my hand - say, Neheb, the Eternal , which turns Bolt and the like into a better Pyretic Ritual - and they're great for playing when you'd otherwise have less mana to spend. A common chain of sequences can run something like this:
· Tap RR5 for Electrodominance . Player A takes 5 to face.
-> Guttersnipe: everyone takes 2 to face.
· Electrodominance eff., play something like Pyromancer's Goggles or Neheb from hand.
· Use part of what little mana I have left to play Bolt from the grave, Player A takes 3 to face. With Pyro Goggles this becomes 6.
-> Guttersnipe: everyone takes 2 to face.
· If I played Neheb instead, I gain RRR and play another Burn spell from hand, triggering another 2 damage to everyone.
In cases where I have some of these Burn enhancers out already, this is more of a typical turn with X-CMC spells that I know will want a lot of mana. In the above scenario, the reason for hitting hard on one player is for cards like Combustible Gearhulk and Risk Factor ; "Either you can give me CA so I can burn other people and improve your chances a little, or you can continue taking damage. Your pick."
Funnily enough, previous drafts ran all of those aside from Hostility . The draft right before this version ran Goggles, and tbh, I don't know how I spaced on that. Almost. I recall in the older versions that I had issues getting things like Thousand-Year Storm and Metallurgic Summonings on the field because of higher CMCs. I definitely want to try those again, but I don't know what all I'd remove and still keep my curve balanced. Heck, like your Boros deck, at some point I ran a lot of copy spells, but in the middle of revamping that version (only nine regular Burn spells, jfc why did I ever think that was good), I eventually wound up dropping most of those, too.
@Luther: That's pretty much what the other two were saying. And trust me, I've had more than enough chances to learn that 40 life is a lot to chunk down lol. Thanks, though.

You have at least chosen a commander that might be able to pull it off. So we have a solid starting point. I had thought about building a burn deck too but I had decided that since burn is nigh impossible in EDH that I would focus on it being more of an attrition deck. A lot of the effects I was considering hit every creature or every player. Something like Lava Spike just doesn't cut it IMO. Maybe with Kess I'm wrong?
Mine is The Fire Of Life. Different colors and a different payoff in the command zone but you should be able to get some ideas from this.
I think my best suggestion to you is remove all the tiny single target one off effects and replace them with copy effects or value effects. Get more stuff like Pyromancer's Goggles and Thousand-Year Storm . Also some more payoffs like Hostility or Metallurgic Summonings turn your burn spells from being ok/good to awesome.

im trying to avoid higher cost things because my mana base is a little small, im currently taking stuff out to put in more lands, although I will definitely be putting in Jace's Sanctum and Metallurgic Summonings good ideas.

- Assume Aurelia, the Warleader isn't in your library.
- Proteus Staff can put a token creature created by Metallurgic Summonings on the bottom of the library. The token ceases to exist.
- You reveal all the cards in the library. Since there isn't a creature card, you put ALL the cards back in ANY order. Meaning you can put Beacon of Tomorrows on top.
- You use Narset to cast the Beacon of Tomorrows without paying its mana cost, making another token and giving you an extra turn.
Extra turn comes around, you repeat the process.

You might consider some cheap replacements: Vivid Creek , Vivid Marsh , Vivid Crag and Vivid Grove instead of Dismal Backwater , Jungle Hollow , Rugged Highlands and Swiftwater Cliffs for extra mana-fixing (which is needed in a 4-color deck). Also: Llanowar Wastes , Yavimaya Coast and Shivan Reef are cheap untapped lands. // You might consider Farseek , Sakura-Tribe Elder , Explosive Vegetation and Circuitous Route for further ramp. Farseek can grab Sunken Hollow , Smoldering Marsh or Cinder Glade , while Circuitous Route can search for Simic Guildgate , Izzet Guildgate and Golgari Guildgate . // You might run Fact or Fiction , Steam Augury and Ancient Excavation for early card draw and graveyard filler for delve cards, like Murderous Cut , Dig Through Time and Tasigur, the Golden Fang (they all got reprinted). Brainstorm and Painful Truths are also great draw spells. // Izzet Charm , Crosis's Charm and Sultai Charm are really versatile removing threats. They could replace Scour from Existence . // Zendikar Resurgent is a mana-doubler, which can fuel big Comet Storm , Blue Sun's Zenith , Pull from Tomorrow , Exsanguinate and Curse of the Swine . // Since you are playing expensive spells, Deep-Sea Kraken , Combustible Gearhulk , Avatar of Fury , Avatar of Woe , Primeval Protector , Sunbird's Invocation , Metallurgic Summonings are great ways to deal a lot of damage.

Ravenrose first of, that 32 land count looks pretty scary to me. I run 36 in my Arjun deck (with 7 mana rocks) and even that is sometimes cutting it close. Seeing that you aim to cast a plethora of mid to high costed instants and sorceries, i'd suggest you use Metallurgic Summonings. Your spells give you an additional body to attack with or in the worst case a chump blocker. Experience learns me that this card can be very clutch. If you're interested in any more instant/sorcery triggers that produce usefull bodies, i'd like to suggest Young Pyromancer, Docent of Perfection Flip and Talrand, Sky Summoner. furthermore, the scry trigger on Jace's Sanctum can be very helpfull. now for the actual instant and sorceries. Ponder is one of my favorites and most used cards. The option to shuffle your deck if you can't find anything usefull has really helped me in the past. Mystical Tutor is a bit more expensive but it will find you whatever you need when you,re in trouble. Bonus Round, Swarm Intelligence, Melek, Izzet Paragon and my fovorite Primal Amulet Flip are absolute beasts when it comes to copying your cards, which can be very powerfull in the right deck. Will Kenrith and Rowan Kenrith have insane synergy together although they're a bit pricey. You're not running that many sorceries, but if you did Hypersonic Dragon is a very sollid card to include. Little can trips like Gitaxian Probe, Quicken, Impulse and Anticipate are quite usefull as well. I'd also suggest to add atleast one more spell that can really beef your hand (and a permanent that gives you no maximum hand size like Spellbook or Reliquary Tower) such as: Blue Sun's Zenith, Pull from Tomorrow, Mind Spring, Stroke of Genius or maybe a wheel effect if you want to possibly hurt your opponents as well. Windfall and Jace's Archivist fit this role very well. Lastly I'll name several other powerfull or usefull cards i forgot about. Psychic Corrosion and Sphinx's Tutelage for mill power, Mindmoil or even my trusty commander if you really like chaos (Teferi's Puzzle Box is an option if you want everyone else to join the madness), Laboratory Maniac is a really nice fail-save (Especialy if you want to secure your Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind/Curiosity combo), regular old Counterspell is always usefull, Counterflux is situation but can stop someone's stupid combo, Chaos Warp, Reality Shift, Pongify are Rapid Hybridization the best removal cards for izzet decks, i like Arcane Denial because it gives your opponent something back, Evacuation can save your beasts as well as fuck over any token decks, cards like Day's Undoing might save you if all goes south, ofcourse any mana rocks are always a welcome addition to a deck. And i guess that's all the suggestions and tips i can think of right now. I know it's a lot, but i live for Izzet decks and any time i get the chance to work on a new one my brain goes into overdrive. I understand what a spellslinger deck needs to dominate and i love to spread that knowledge. I hope i helped, have fun with the power of Izzet!
